Join the Oregon Symphony at their annual free outdoor concert this Thursday at Portland Parks & Recreation’s Waterfront Park.
This year, the Symphony is pleased to share the spotlight with the Portland Youth Philharmonic who will take the stage at 5 pm for a one-hour concert, and the Oregon Ballet Theatre, which will perform the Black Swan pas de deux from Swan Lake during the Symphony's concert.
Closing festivities include the traditional grand finale — Tchaikovsky's 1812 Overture with an elaborate fireworks show, complete with military cannons from the Oregon Army National Guard 218th Field Artillery.
The concert will be located right on the river's edge. No tickets are required. Bring chairs or blankets for lawn seating, a little something to eat, and just sit back and enjoy!
